In this episode of the show we are taking a long hard look at two films by Nicolas Winding Refn, Only God Forgives and The Neon Demon. Over the course of our long-winded and sprawling discussion we peek behind the curtain of style to find out what drives (lol) this filmmaker and what his movies are actually about. We slobber over their aesthetics and take apart their thematic aspirations one by one to find out what hides beneath the slick veneer of the pop arthouse cinema where Nicolas Winding Refn has built his resplendent abode.

Tune in and enjoy!
